Extremist Haredi mob injures 3 cops in Beit Shemesh

Extremist ultra-Orthodox rioters are violently protesting lockdown enforcement in Beit Shemesh, with hundreds throwing rocks at cops, according to police.

Police say three officers have been injured and that additional forces have been called in.

Meanwhile, members of extreme Haredi factions are also blocking roads in Jerusalem in protest of works on the light rail, which is set to pass through their neighborhood despite their objections.

A mob shattered bus windshields, shouting: “You wanted a train to pass here — now no public transportation will pass at all.”
